Legendary is pretty unique, although yet another game made from Unreal Tournaments game engine as like Turok. This game offers a interesting story as well as creatures in this game.
You would really enjoy Legendary if you are into mythological creatures like Centaurs, Griffins, and many other sort of old mythology folklore creatures that all so happen to rampage threw New York, Demolishing everything in sight, all by accidentally opening Pandora's Box.
Legendary's graphics are amazing specially for the Unreal Tournament's engine that was used. The Creatures will at first make you question about proceeding onward but once they usually grab a car and throw it at a sky scrapper you get the hint that you better move or it will be you being tossed like a rag doll by a enormous Griffin.
The only real fall back into Legendary is the lack of ability to move around all your paths are fixed an there is basically only one way, one goal, but you have small puzzles you have to think threw an obstacles you encounter; as like another strategy orientated first person shooter as like Half Life2 except you are not fighting futuristic aliens, instead Mythological creatures that are decimating present time New York! ... exciting! If you enjoyed Half Life2 this game is ideal to you.
Another great thing I admired was that every time you run across a new mythological critter that is either trying to step on you or make you as a small snack, Legendary has a great description of the mythological creature and what folk lore they originated from.
Legendary has a online multiplayer feature that is deathmatch and co-operatively configurable. Sadly you can not play as a Werewolf, Griffin, but only has a gun wielding human..

pretty cool game im very suprised with this game ign gave it a 2.3 bad score it was worth a 7 at least it's very fun to play despite the graphics the ai is cool and it has a good story i really liked this game.
This game was fun. It's fast-paced, you never get lost, there's decent boss battles, and you can finish in an afternoon (6-8 hours). It reminded me of Diablo II if playing first person perspective. Repetitive for sure, but definitley worthy of the rental.
